Geraint and Jack read through the Labour Party's 850-page leaked document 'The work of the Labour Party’s Governance and Legal Unit in relation to antisemitism, 2014 - 2019', which shows - put charitably - an arguably factionally-motivated negligence from the party bureaucracy in dealing with antisemitism cases, a litany of bigoted comments and exc…

Recorded 100 days into the tyrannical reign of the hated Boris Johnson and his illegitimate fascist government, and not actually concerning Pasolini's Salo (1975), RP145 is an episode of two halves - Geraint's half is a reading of historian Dominic Sandbrook's feverish fantasy of Jeremy Corbyn's first 100 days as prime minister, as published in fri…
